Georgia Institute of Technology Reviews
I could not have picked a better college to attend! It has the major that I was interested in, Mechanical Engineering, as well as a great investment for my future. The professors have been excellent and have been more than willing to answer my questions. The food is great, and GT provides several dining options throughout campus which is big plus when I have classes at various places on campus. The dorms for freshman are traditional dorms which are not fancy but adequate. I have found a place that I love. I have made great friends that I suspect that I will have for the rest of my life.
The application process is done in such a way that students that not only have academic prowess but also several other talents and passions makes this campus a truly diverse experience. There are a lot of philanthropic opportunities, as well as many clubs that give leadership lessons in whatever the student desires. Because Georgia Tech is a world-class campus, the opportunities offered to the students are many and are also well-funded for those who do not have a lot of money themselves. Because of this, over half of the student body participates in a program of campus before they graduate, which will normally be things like an internship, co-op, or studying abroad. The professors at this institute are extremely knowledgable in what they teach and most make an effort to meet the student where they need in order to further their academic progress. Overall, everyone on campus strives for greatness and bringing something into the world that helps them accomplish their dreams. Go Jackets!
College is all about opening doors of opportunity - Georgia Tech does just that. In an academic sense, every subject is integrated with technology which allows students to earn a degree that better prepares them for a more technology-driven society. In a social sense, Tech may not have all the parties like other schools, but they have a diverse group of students from not just different races and economic backgrounds but different states and countries and interests (most of us are nerds at heart with unique passions for other things too...and yes, things beyond robotics and math team as well). The faculty are great, providing a lot of research opportunities or connections. And the ATL area is not only a booming city to have a fun college experience, but it's a place to find career opportunities with nearby, world renown corporations and institutions. I'm so happy and proud to be attending GaTech and wouldn't want to spend my time as an college student any other way.
